When it comes to nightlife in Singapore, the city-state practically transforms itself from an ever-so-efficient business hub to a buzzing network of bars and nightclubs as soon as the sun goes down. Busy executives loosen their ties and kick up their heels in one of the many rocking bars around Clarke Quay, earnest students-by-day let down their hair for some laid-back bar-hopping around Orchard Road, whilst many visitors with only a few days to spare take full advantage of the thriving rooftop bar scene – lapping up the incredible views over the iconic skyline whilst sipping a sumptuous cocktail. Pubbing and clubbing here is a must if you want to feel the true night-pulse of the Lion City; experience the country only by day and you get just half of the picture.
My #1 hotel recommendation for Singapore:
This upscale hotel is spread over 3 ultra-modern skyscrapers. It is 2 minutes’ walk from the Bayfront underground station and 9 km from the Universal Studios theme park in Singapore.
The elegant rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows and a view of the city/cove and are equipped with free WLAN, flat-screen TV and minibars. The family rooms have living areas, Nespresso machines and balconies with garden views. The rooms on the boardroom floor and the 1- to 4-room suites offer access to a lounge with free breakfast. Some suites offer butler service and/or private gyms.
There are chic bars and fine restaurants with international cuisine. Other amenities include a roof terrace with infinity pool, spa and gym.
